An early rise for Yoga as the sun starts creeping up over the horizon. A time to reflect, breathe and simply take in the peacefulness of all that surrounds you. It is then time for breakfast before heading to the picturesque coastal town of Swakopmund - where the ocean meets the desert. The driving time is around 5 hours, somewhat meditative with forever changing landscapes.
Once in Swakopmund, we will enjoy sunset yoga with spectacular views of the Namib dunes followed by a German cuisine dinner

Spend the afternoon relaxing and taking in the serenity of nature or if you simply can’t get enough of what this area has to offer, head off again on an afternoon activity. Early evening yoga to stretch and focus on breathing, taking in the positive of this amazing place and simply letting go.
